My husband & I had an amazing two day stay at the Ocean House. Our hosts, Jared & Colleen were amazing - what wasn't to love - beautifully decorated, an inviting wrap around porch, coffee/tea, infused water & afternoon cookies in the dining room. We had an adorable king room all a block from the beach. We totally enjoyed taking... More

The accomdations are well maintained with good wifi, computer/printer accessibility, tea and coffee always available, refrigerator, bikes, clean comfy rooms and a beautiful wide wrap around porch.

The ocean house is a large inn one block from the ocean and a short walk along the lake into town. I stayed in an annex king bed room. The annex offers a separate entrance and immediate access to the parking and street. Our room was nicely appointed with excellent bedding and decorations. I have also stayed in the main... More

We had a wonderful three-day stay in the Ocean House. Colleen and Jared and all the staff are friendly and willing to help. The Ocean House is a block from the boardwalk and we enjoyed an early morning walk along it before a scrumptious breakfast buffet every day. The room was spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed. There were... More

I love this place. It is so authentic, and so clearly a family-run business (they're always on the premises, working alongside their terrific staff). It's very old fashioned; most of the decor and furnishings are antique. And yet the rooms feel beachy-fresh. Amenities include free bikes, a healthy and abundant house-made breakfast in a lovely period dining room, ice tea... More

Loved this B&B so much. I haven't stayed in a B&B in a long time and this has renewed my love for the quaint inns and B&B's of the Jersey shore. The staff here are so friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Our room was darling and we even had a view of the ocean. We were on the 3rd... More

A return visit to this B&B by the sea was as relaxing and enjoyable as the first. Owners and staff are a delight - attentive, accommodating and friendly.

The Ocean House is a wonderful B&B to stay in, just a block from the beach, with chairs/towels/bikes that you can rent (for no charge) at any time. It's just a few minute walk away from Third Avenue, which has a couple of great places for lunch and dinner. Breakfast was pretty good, and the place as a whole really... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is our quest and desire to preserve and enhance the magic that is, The Ocean House. Just one short block from the beach and an enjoyable walk along the lake to Spring Lake's shopping district. Enjoy a run on the Spring Lake boardwalk or bike about the town to view the majestic homes and breath taking landscapes. If relaxation is your desire, there is no finer porch to read that book you haven't had a chance to get to, or have that glass of wine with your spouse before enjoying one of the many fine restaurants in our area. We are happy to help with reservations and any other travel needs you may have? ... more   less
